Farmers Digging Deeper project Field Day. ‘Establishing successful multi species pasture crops in Bass Coast- How and why’.
The Bass Coast Landcare Network through the Farmers Digging Deeper project are hosting this exciting field day focusing on ‘Establishing successful multi species pasture crops in Bass Coast- How and why’.
Community Information and Field Day on Giant Gippsland Earthworm Habitat, Identification and Management.
The Bass Coast Landcare Network and project partners invite you along to this exciting Giant Gippsland Earthworm community information and field day.
Giant Gippsland Earthworms are only found in an area roughly the size of 40,000 ha in South and West Gippsland, Victoria. The majority of its known current habitat is on farmland and farmers can play a vital role in its conservation and management. It is essential that farmers and land managers continue to work together to manage valuable habitat in ways that protect and enhance GGE habitat, ensuring that the earthworms continue to survive and thrive.
This community workshop will cover:
Date: Friday 25th August 2023.
Time: 10.30am to 2.00pm.
Address: Meet at the Bena Hall, 41 Main Road, Bena.

The ‘Enhanced Knowledge and Protection of the Giant Gippsland Earthworm’ project received grant funding from the Australian Government.
For Save Western Port Woodlands members and allies, the Bass Coast Distinctive Areas and Landscapes hearing was arduous, time-consuming, costly and also unexpectedly worthwhile.
Protecting the woodlands from a surge in sand mining proved to be the major issue of the eight-week hearing, which started in the Wonthaggi Town Hall in early March and closed in Spring Street in late April.

Kongwak Hills Landcare Group is coordinating a community tree planting event in the Kongwak Pioneer Reserve to celebrate National Tree Day, as the Reserve is in need of some love from its community! We’d love for you to join in to get plants in the ground. Dry years have diminished the north/west section such that a critical mass of understory and trees have died back, leaving the forest exposed to further dryness, loss of plants and proliferation of weeds. Replacing the understory, midstory and trees will restore this part of our beautiful reserve to a sustainable landscape and support its plants, animals and birds. KHLG want you to learn about Landcare, love your forest and learn how to give it the care it needs.
This event will be held on Saturday July 29th from 10am-4pm, with lunch provided.
